[indiscernible] this is not obamacare. this is health care for all people in america. this is the problem i have with democrats. it is not obamacare, it is for everyone. host: some other items in the news this morning, the lead story in the "washington post" talks about president obama's trip to the middle east -- host: this is also how the story was covered in the new york times this morning -- in ourack to the phones discussion regarding the third anniversary of the affordable care act. james is on the line for independents. he lives in lafayette, indiana. go ahead. caller: i don't understand how any doctor can refuse you service because there's not a person in this country who has not used the american taxpayer dollars to get th
for their final court hearing according to human rights first. let's hear what you have to say this morning. john, raleigh, north carolina, republican. isller: this administration or is trying to score political points. the released 12 bosch -- 12 high-risk level 1 offenders. to thetom line gets back rule of law. i do not know about you, but here in raleigh, when you pull local wal-mart and see a police officer's car in their in front it is usually a shoplifter. that shoplifter gets handcuffed. taken down. if they makew, bail they are released on bail, and then they appear for their court date. well, a lot of people make points about the low-level offenders of the illegal immigrants, but the bottom line is once they crossed the border, they have crossed a sovereign line of the united states willingly. unless they were kidnapped from mexico or whatever other country they're coming from. therefore, they break the law straight off the bat. i would a foreign them -- afford them the human rights dignities of not being treated bill, but at the same time, they break the law. reated ill. t holding everyo
, share your comments. here is a story from "the hill" -- john is our next call in florida, republican. the railroadked for over 30 years. i got seniority buildup. i used to get laid off every year. i am so sick of these federal people not ever -- crying about they will lose 22 days a year. this is ridiculous. they can't fire them. they can't lay them off. all these other companies, when their business goes down, four or five are laid off this winter. these people have got to take their turn on being laid off. the fact is, i don't know how we can lay them off anyway. they get more money in the off theirking 2.5% budget. they should have plenty of money left over. this is crazy. these people keep going on and on. i mean, i was laid off five years one-time and had to go out of of state for five years and work. and: let's talk to maryland huntsville, alabama. what are you experiencing? nasar: well, i work at and huntsville. we call it rocket city. this is the home of the saturn 5. i am a specialist. my greatest concern is the on the future see of the workforce. we are losing more than hal
% said the palestinian authority, and just 35% said neither or no opinion. host: want to go to john now from woodville, ohio. john, give us your take on this growth and opportunities report by the republican party today. caller: well, i'm not quite sure that i agree with the direction that the g.o.p. is actually taking now. they're fighting an issue that it's going to be very difficult . i mean, when you have an administration that gives away food stamps, they give away cell phones and they're promising everything, the trouble is, the pide piper has to be paid, and what's happening now is obama has always thought about -- he said he's for the middle class. trouble is, had he gone to the gas station, have you gone to the supermarket, and also, have you looked at your paycheck? he really says one thing, but he does other things, and it's coming around. i think the g.o.p. probably on't do any good until the american people see what the promises of the democratic party really are. they can take the talk, but unless they get an opportunity to actually do something for the american people, fo
for another 20 years probably. host: how old are you now, john? caller: i'm 47. host: how long do you plan to work for? caller: probably another 20 years. host: roger in north carolina. hi, roger. caller: yes, current law prohibits issuing pension pavements who aren't retire bud the coalition and unions just finished the commission report that recommend to congress that they change that law now retirees can have their benefits cut if this goes through congress, so i think everybody needs to start making some phone calls. host: all right our last phone call. up next we will talk to congressman steve pearce about his outreach to minorities, women and young voters and then we will turn our attention to capitol hill with earl. we'll be right back. >> 34 years ago fay we began providing access to the kong and federal government. the c-span networks created by america's cable companies in 1979 and brought to you as a public service by your cable providers. >> and we can take pictures with m.r.i. or upset scans or c.t. scans and see the whole thing but there's an enormous gap about how the circui
you said. host: it's all right. we will move on to john in florida, and independent there. caller: yes, this is john from saint pete. iraq is doing very well, contrary to popular belief. their government is very much thenced today, with exception of the prime minister, the country has done quite well. even obama said the other day that back in 2002 emma it was a dumb -- it was a dumb war. and now they say it was a highly successful. do you know that the iraqi government is in good shape? caller: because i follow it. i follow it by their newspapers. hello? host: we're listening. caller: i follow their newspapers. of other newspapers that can be translated into the english language. there is a very solid government there. they're fighting for positioning of the oil. they are the number one liters and natural gas. their number two in oil. that is where of the main reasons we went over there. if you recall, we would integrate -- we went into kuwait to kick saddam hussein out of kuwait. during the clinton administration, america brought $11 trillion of kuwait currency. then they revalued th
and another war again. here john is a republican in the suburbs and alexandra, virginia. caller: good morning, thank you for taking my call. in regard to u.s. involvement in the commander testified to the senate last week or two is toogo that it propagated, the situation in we don't terms of truly understand who the resistance is. i heard from folks speaking this one regarding group specifically is in line with u.s. policy or this group is in line with u.s. values. there is no way that anybody could say that and have any degree of confidence or 100% confidence in making that statement. that turned out to be a hoax. unless we have some really solid fidelity as to what we're ,oing and who we are supporting i would say we should not get involved. the second point i would like to make, if we look at u.s. history, the british and french were interested in blake -- breaking the blockade in north and south in the civil war because they were unable to get cotton exports from the south. of whatuick analysis would have happened, but troops in and either tilted the balance in the civil war or even if it
. john is joining us from illinois. republican line. good morning. caller: thank you for taking my call. my comment is about the girl that was killed in that unfortunate incident. from what i understand she was shot to death was sitting in her father's lap. if the politicians want to go after criminals on this type of stuff, this father was a known gang member. does he not have some responsibility, there something in the child's death? i do feel sorry for the family, but it seems to me that they should also be prosecuting him for having a hand in this. host: your part of the country has been hit hard by gun violence. chicago leads the nation, doesn't it? caller: yes, it does. i am a law-abiding gun owners. i have raised my kids properly. but i do not want to see my rights taken away. host: thank you. justin, tennessee, good morning. caller: good morning, sir. how you doing? host: good, thank you. caller: we are talking a lot about guns. with video games we are talking a lot about freedom of speech. these things have been sacrosanct for a long time. what you find when we look at these st
